1986 Cos d'Estournel
Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon
Bin Soiled label
1986 is a vintage marked by an extremly dry summer and by harvesting carried out in ideal conditions. Very intense colour which as yet has scarcely developed. Very complete bouquet which is still closed up; spices, liquorice, cedar wood. Its structure with fine tannin is huge and the wine has full, rich flesh. Very long in the mouth. A virile wine with a future to be laid down in the cellar for many long years, but it may tasted today with game or red meats.
